Darrel Clute

Ramblings from yet another IT Professional


Hi, I am Darrel Clute, here is a brief synopsis on me.


I am an IT Infrastructure Architect, with a focus on bridging business needs together with data center usage. I bring a cross functional focus on Network, Security, Virtulization, and UNIX Systems Engineering, trying to bridge the gaps between the disciplines. I am a strong proponent of automation and orchestration, with a focus on using the same toolsets across disciplines. I also advocate for Open Source software use in the enterprise as well as for by individuals. Additional synopsis of my career can be found through my Resume.


Outside of work I can be found spending time with my wife, and six children as well as caring for our small homestead. Current occupants of the farm includes chickens and goats. Prior to relocating back to Michigan there were also ducks, geese, sheep, rabbits, alpaca, pigs, and horses accounted upon our livestock.


You can find me online in a professional context at LinkedIn. I also post in a primarily professional context on Twitter. Feel free to connect with me on either or both of these platforms.
